The Cape Cod & Islands Chapter of the Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (MA VI - http://blueknightsma6.tripod.com ) announces that its' 42nd Annual Blessing of the Bikes will be held on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at West Dennis Beach, MA, with the gate opening at 9:30 AM. 

The on-site Blessing will occur at Noon, so bikes must plan on being there, registered & parked by 11:45 AM. The minimum suggested participation donation is $5.00, with proceeds going to the Blue Knights to be used for charitable purposes; such as our Cape Cod Community College Scholarship, Cape Cod Times Needy Fund, American Cancer Society and Blue Knights Special Fund (assisting fellow Officers involved in motorcycle accidents). Refreshments will be available for purchase and vendors can set up stands & tables. In past years, up to 1,500 motorcycles traveled from every State in New England to be a part of the Blessing, with an estimated 2,000-2,250 people in attendance.


Directions to the Blessing: Take US-6 East to Exit 9A and bear right onto Route 134 South. For a leisurely, scenic ride, take US-6A East to Route 134 South in East Dennis and continue until you pass US-6. Continue 2 miles to the Route 28 traffic lights, then cross Route 28 onto Swan River Road. At the end of Swan River Road, take a right onto Lower County Road and about 3/4 of a mile later take a left onto Lighthouse Road. When you enter the small rotary circle, the Beach entrance is halfway around on the other side of the circle. This entrance will be for motorcycles only; cars should continue around the circle and enter the parking lot to the left of the snack bar.

The Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club was formed in the Spring of 1974 in Bangor, Maine, with the MA VI Chapter being formed at the start of 1976.

TENTATIVE Event - Copied from last year May 6  (Sunday)  Blues For The Troops VI

Breakaway
221 Newbury St, Danvers, Massachusetts 01923

It's a sure sign of Spring in these parts and those of us who play any part in making it happen look forward to it all year long! It's our sixth annual BLUES FOR THE TROOPS, baby, and it gets BIGGER and BETTER every year!

Amazing raffle prizes, fantastic bands and special guest performers (TBA), 50/50 and silent auctions, with every dime raised filling the coffers for Operation Troop Support, a qualified 501(3)(c) non-profit organization. Operation Troop Support works tirelessly 24/7/365 to 
provide our troops with things they can't get anywhere else, both during deployment and upon their return home.

Lee and I take great pride in being able to say, year after year, that every single cent we take in goes directly to OTS, which in turn uses all that money to send care packages all around the world to our troops where they're serving! That means if one of us needs something 
to fulfill our role(s), we dig into our own pockets to make it happen. There's NOBODY being paid, claiming expenses or otherwise nicking our bottom line because every cent counts and we consider it part of our own personal donation to the cause.

The Lee Hawkins Band and all the other artists, performers and volunteers are honored to play a part in the benefit by donating their time and talents, while the Breakaway in Danvers graciously provides the venue, which just happens to be one of the hottest live music 
rooms on the North Shore!

Your $10 cover charge - every cent of which goes directly to Operation Troop Support again this year - means you get to hear some of the best talent on the North Shore (or anywhere else!) tear it up on one of the nicest stages in New England!

It's a terrific example of community in action to help Dick and Christine Moody, Ruthie and Steve Weick and all the other great folks at Operation Troop Support do the amazing things they do for the service men and women willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. Local 
businesses and artists are contributing to make the raffles something that truly will have something for everyone!

If you have an item or service you'd like to donate for our raffles, please contact David Papa, who is coordinating our fund raising activities again this year. God Bless America and God Bless our Troops!
